Live music, food trucks, inflatables, art and craft vendors and more are on tap for the Elizabethtown Parks and Recreation fall fest.

The event, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown, will offer a little bit of everything for everyone, Program Coordinator Anna Johnson said.

“We just want people to come out and have a good time,” she said.

Assistant Program Coordinator Travis Wells said there will be more than 40 vendors in attendance. Nine or so of those include community businesses or organizations who will have a variety of games with prizes set up for children. Additionally, there will be an for children to color and draw.

The other vendors will offer art and craft wares.

Around 11 a.m., there will be live music featuring Fontainium. There will be a dance performance from the Dance Centre of Elizabethtown around 2:30 p.m. and Crazy Thing Arts also will be on hand during the festival for face painting and more.

The event also features a pumpkin contest. Residents are encouraged to bring their pumpkins that they’ve carved, painted, or decorated in another way to be entered. Judging takes place at 3 p.m., so pumpkins should be entered prior to that time.

There also will be a “haunted” room. Students from John Hardin and Central Hardin high schools will be dressed up to add to the spooky experience.

Outside, the festival also will have inflatables sponsored by T-Mobile. A few food trucks, including Scratch Batch and Bourbon Trail Bites, will be set up for when attendees get hungry.

Should the parking at Pritchard Community fill up, overflow parking will be up the street at the Elizabethtown Police Department. Masks are recommended.

Wells and Johnson said the festival is just something new for the community to enjoy.
